Working with people has always been Gena’s passion, whether guiding a student into their new career or easing someone’s worries when it comes to their next steps in life. Gena’s goal is to be the person you trust to guide you to the home of your dreams.
Gena Ryan was born in NY and raised in Charleston. She has since lived in NC, CT, and FL but was happy to once again call Charleston her home over 10 years ago. Gena comes from a background in Higher Education with additional experience in healthcare and business.
She attended Clemson University and earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology which gives her a unique insight into understanding others' needs.
Gena entered the real estate world because it not only allows her to use her professional skills but it also lets her have the flexibility and ability to continuously grow. She enjoys working one on one with clients, getting out in the community, and going step by step through a process to ensure all is done right.
When she is not working in the real estate world, Gena can be found with her toddler son and husband of over 15 years, working out at Jazzercise, or curled up with one of the 10 books she is currently reading.
Real People, Real Reviews:
"Gena Ryan was our realtor and let me tell you something, she was absolutely wonderful. She did everything she said she would and more. She got us way more than we were wanting and even more than we listed for. She is by far one of the best Realtors, and an incredible woman too. It was a pleasure for my wife and me to have her help us on this journey. I would definitely recommend her as much as humanly possible!" - Steve Stark (Sold a Home in Moncks Corner, SC)
"Gena has been absolutely amazing with our home buying process. The market, like most people know, is brutal right now but Gena never once let us lose hope. From the very beginning, she was extremely patient while we learned the area and figured out exactly what we wanted and needed. She listened to every idea and was there to support us every time we changed our minds and went another direction. Endless amount of support, no matter the time of day. Gena was so determined to help us find a place to call home. I can't thank her (or recommend her) enough!" - Kayla Wiley (Bought a Home in Summerville, SC)
"Gena is an amazing realtor. She worked tirelessly to find us what we were looking for. We will be moving into our dream home in a few weeks. Highly recommend!" - Amy G. (Bought & Sold a Home in North Charleston, SC)
"I seriously cannot say enough amazing things about Gena. She knew exactly what we wanted and she busted her tail to make it happen for us. She found what we thought was impossible in this market and gave us our forever home where we will be raising our newborn son. She was always available to us no matter what time of day and was always prepared to answer my million questions. Navigating this process with her was simple and hassle-free which is what we needed during this crazy time in our lives. Would recommend her to absolutely anyone and everyone!" - Kelsey Dodd (Bought & Sold a Home in Charleston, SC)
"Gena is the best! If you are looking for someone who is both kind, understanding, flexible, and patient she is your woman. It was not an easy time to sell or find a home during the pandemic, but she made the process smooth for us and we can't thank her enough." - Jacqueline Cummings (Bought a Home in Charleston, SC, Sold a Home in Mt. Pleasant, SC)
